August 21, 1946 - August 24, 2021
World War II had ended just a year earlier. The average cost of a new house was $5,600 while the median family annual income was about $3,000. A dozen eggs cost just $ 0.64. And television was limited to two networks, and 12 hours of programming a week. The year was 1946 and my father, Dwight Paul Hansen, was born on August 21, in Rockford, Idaho. He was the third youngest of a large family and spent his childhood working and playing alongside his brothers on their 640-acre-farm west of Blackfoot.
